Retrotransposons are mobile genetic elements that accomplish transposition via an RNA intermediate. These elements can be transcriptionally activated by stress factors, such as UV light, ozone, pathogens, wounding and drought. A red alga, Porphyra yezoensis has recently been recognized as a model plant for fundamental and applied study in marine biological science. In this paper, pulsed streamer-like discharge in liquid was used as a new stress condition, and the transcriptional levels of retrotransposon and functional genes of a red alga, Porphyra yezoensis was investigated. From the results of reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) experiments, it is clear that the transcriptions of retrotransposon and functional genes were activated by applying pulsed streamer-like discharge.
